A Good Spot of This Earth

"I have spoken about Calvin's being a home to which you can return. But we all know that the main thing is for you graduates to go forth from here to other spots of this good earth. For not only is every square inch of this campus the Lord's; every square inch of the whole earth is His. Maybe there are not enough Calvin graduates to redeem every one of those square inches. But there are enough of them to do a whole lot."

— Calvin English professor emeritus Ed Ericson in a 1986 Commencement address,
"A Good Spot of This Earth."
